Minor update to BaseCamp, apparently to allow it to work with some newer devices, no change in functionality as there is no further development of BaseCamp

BaseCamp software version 4.7.5

I wonder if this minor fix is to cure the major issue that we have been experiencing.

eg routes transferred from Basecamp get wiped at the next transfer.
Routes transferred from Basecamp have the names of route points changed
Routes transferred from Basecamp are prone to get stuck in a RUT. Routes created on the XT using the same points, are not.

I will be looking at this with some interest, and I will make sure I keep my previous installation files to compare.

Thanks @Stu Fingers crossed.

Could this update be related with the new XT2?

The new XT2 info says that it does not connect to Basecamp, so I doubt it !

I'll see if I can find where I read it.

Apparently, (I don't know), the message appears and then it connects. But what it does with the data when you try to send it from BC, I wouldn't know. Nor do I want to find out.
